MG Motor UK is offering a free-of-charge extension to all qualifying MG Roadside Assistance packages until the end of May, due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Owners who took delivery of a new MG model between 23 March 2019 and 30 April 2019 will qualify for the free extension. The marque will also lengthen service parameters for customers unable to service their car at a franchised dealer until the end of May, while vehicle warranties will also not be affected by the restrictions on servicing.
Harvey France, head of aftersales and parts at MG Motor UK, said: “Many MG customers across the country are relying on their cars for work, to access vital supplies and to care for family, friends and neighbours who may need extra support during this difficult period. We wanted to ensure that MG played its part in helping our drivers continue their hard work and thank them for all they are doing for their community.”
Further, MG will continue to review the extension to its AA-managed roadside assistance package and vehicle service parameters, with the option to introduce a further extension if required.
Edmund King, AA president, said: “We are delighted to help MG extend their Roadside Assistance packages, which we help to deliver, free of charge until the end of May. The current [coronavirus] crisis is taking a financial toll on many so any help is welcome. Whilst road traffic is substantially down there are millions of critical workers whose cars are essential to keep Britain moving and its great to see MG is helping with this effort.”
